Bits and pieces

It seems a long time since I have blogged and looking at the date of the last post it certainly is. What have I been doing in the interim? Firstly a tabletopper for Halloween. While Halloween is not celebrated much in Australia I did see this fabric with bats on it and thought that it would make a cute tabletopper.

Secondly a tablerunner for DS and DDIL for their new dining table. I like the fact that no matter which side of the table you sit on you see Christmas trees.  I found the tutorial to make the runner at the Missouri quilt company.   

Next were the tabletoppers below for 3 very good friends. I chose bright cute fabric as they all have grandchildren.

And last but not least is the set below which I made for my BIL and SIL. They both like the “beachy” look so I thought that the shell fabric would be appropriate for them.     I made a tabletopper along with hexagon shaped placemats for dinner plates, entrĂ©e plates and coasters.

I do have another tablerunner and matching placemats as a WIP but more on that later on.
Now that I am on holidays for the next couple of weeks I hope to get some more time to blog and sew.

Until next time happy sewing and I look forward to blog hopping and seeing what everyone has been up to.

You have been busy Karen, and you are not the only one who forgets to blog. Love the table runner especially, but everything is beautiful.
